Alison Frankel's ON THE CASE (Thomson Reuters 10/26/2011 "Gupta's best defense?

Gansman. The Gansman appeal, argued by Morvillo Abramowitz, established new law in this area. Frankel notes that, "... crucially, the appeals court ruled it's appropriate for accused tipsters to argue that they trusted the people who received their inside information not to trade on it."
